Woods said he wasn't surprised at the play called by coaches with the hall on Missouri's 2-yard line We run a lot of crazy plays," he said Missouri Poach A1 Onofrio said the Rig Kight record pass was less risky than it appeared, thrown when the Tigers were trailing 24 2:5 We figured we couldn't lose on it because a safety wouldn't have hurt that much and an interception would be as good as a punt," he said ■*Tw(>nly tour points is enough to win," said llusker defensive Coach Monte Kiffin, taking the blame for the Big Eight Conference defc'at "We just can't give up the long bomb ' After Woods' long bomb, Tim Gibbons iced the game tor the Tigers with a late 34- yard field goal Nebraska's hopes waned with five minutes left when a broken Husker play led to Dave Shamblin attempting what appeared to b(> a feeble throw when Missouri defenders converged on him The play was ruled a fumble, which was recovered by Missouri's Bruce Carter Nebraska had one more shot after the Shamblin fumble but ffusker quarterback Vince Ferrragamo threw an interception picked off by Mark Kirkpatrick Nebraska's only second half scoring erne from field goals of 20 and 21 yards by A1 Eveland, the second giving the Buskers a 2423 lead before Woods came back with his game-breaking touchdown strike. Woods most of the season has been tagged the Tigers' No 2 quarterback, but has logged more playing time because of an injury to top signal-caller Steve f’isarkiew icz. Handling the running chores the bulk of the afternoon for Missouri was Dean Leibson, a replacement 1 back for the injured Curt Brown, the Big Kight Conference s leading rusher The teams matched each other with three touchdowns each in the first half, but two Missouri kick conversions and a field goal by Gibbons provided the 23-18 halftime score Nebraska missed all its first half conversion attempts, once on a kick and twice on twopoint pass efforts that failed Missouri struck first after a Rob Fitzgerald interception of a Ferragamo pass and Woods scored later from the 1 Nebraska bounced back with a pair of touchdowns, one when Kent Smith covered a punt blocked by Larry Valasec in the end zone and another when I-back Monte An thony plunged over from the 1, NORMAN.

Weatherhie, relegated to the second team for the first time this season, came in early in the third period after Cowboy end f)aria Butler recovered a Sooner fumble on the Oklahoma 32 Weatherhie hit Gerald Bain on a 10-yard pass to put the ball on the 10 and two plays later Skip Taylor scored on a six- yard run, then caught a Weatherhie pass for a two-point play as the Cowboys cut the defict to 24-21, Wildcats no match for Jaybawks MANHATTAN, Kan (AID The Kansas Jayhawks, with touchdowns by Scott McMichael, Laverne Smith, and .Mark Lissak, defeated offensively inept Kansas Slate Saturday, 24 14, for their first Big Eight Conference football victory. Kansas Slate, 10 and winless in its last 10 conference outings, managed only one long drive, a 94 yard touchdown march after the game w as out of reach in the fourth period Nolan Cromwell, Kansas' great wishbone quarterback who underwent knee surgery follow ing last week's loss to Oklahoma, watched from the sideline in a wheelchair His replacements. McMichael and Lissak, perforiiK'd adequately but failed to put together any sustained marches. McMichael, a senior more noted for his passing than running, directed the Jayhawks on a 37-yard spurt following a 20yard K-State punt for the day’s first score early in the first period. Bill Campfield darted 17 yards on first down and four plays later McMichael circled right end for the touchdown Kansas defensive back Chris Golub, on the first play of the second quarter, intercepted Duane Howard’s pass and returned it 20 yards to the Wildcats' 44 One play- later, Smith set a Kansas record with his 24th career touchdown on a 41yard dash. Kansas broke it open with 10 quick points in the third quarter. Wildcat defensive back Marvin Sw itzer intercepted a Lissak pass after KU had taken a 24-0 lead and streaked 65 yards for a touchdown in the third period. Colorado rolls over Iowa St. BOI LDKR, Colo (AID Sophomore quarterback Jeff Knapple came off the bench to direct Colorado to a four- touchdown explosion in the second quarter, including TD runs of 41 and 29 yards by tailback Tony Reed, as the Buffaloes shocked 16th ranked Iowa State 33-14 Saturday in Big Eight Conference football Knapple relieved starter Jeff Austin early in the second period after the Buffalo offense showed little punch and completed five passes in a row to help the Buffs score on four consecutive possessions The victory boosted Colorado’s conference record to 2 1 and its over all mark to 5 2 The loss dropped ISU to 5-2 over all and 12 in the Big Eight, Iowa State, ranked third nationally in scoring and total offense, squandered two scoring opportunities on fumbles near the goal line The Cyclones' only scores came late in the third period when Wayne Stanley- passed 19 yards to split end Luther Blue and in the closing seconds when Buddy Hardeman passed one yard to Ray Hardee Reed burst through the left side of the line and raced 41 yards on the third play of Colorado's initial scoring drive Three minutes later, the Buffs again needed only- three plays to score. Knapple hit tight end Don Hasselbeck on a 48-yard pass play to help set up fullback Jim Kelleher's oney ard plunge for the TD Super sub again Mo. Valley settles for 13-13tie BALDWIN. Kan (AP) Baker University fought NAIA Division II third-ranked Missouri Valley College to a 13-13 tie here Saturday in a Heart of America Conference football game Jeff Steinle scored Missouri Valley’s first touchdown in the first period on a 33-yard pass from A1 LaMura and Joe Stallina kicked the extra point. Baker's Maynar Pierce scored in the second quarter on an 8-yard rush with Vic Marglen kicking the extra point to make it 7-7 at halftime Baker again scored in the third quarter on a 27-yard pass to Bill Battles from Pierce but the kick for the extra point was blocked. Missouri Valley scored its final touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 7-yard run by Larry Ruehter, but the kick after was blocked. Baker has a total of 216 yards rushing to Missouri Valley's 96, with the visitors totaling 104 yards through passes to Baker’s 96 Missouri Valley is now 5-1-1 in the conference, while Baker is 2-4-1. Missouri quarterback Pete Woods, who was called on to start after Steve Pisarkiewicz failed to recover from an injury to his elbow, again led the Tigers to a stunn­ ing upset, this one 34-24 over Nebraska. Here he tries to dive for extra yardage during first-half play, and is wrapped up by the Cornhuskers' Cletus Pillen. (UPl) Dorsett breaks record Cowboys shock Oklahoma Sooners ANNAPOLIS. Md, (AID Pitt’s swift Tonv' Dorsett became major college football's all-time rushing leader Saturday, carrying 27 times for 180 yards and three touchdowns as the second- ranked Panthers swamped Navy 4.5-0. Dorsett smashed the record of 5,177 yards set by Ohio State's Archie Griffin with a 32-yard touchdown sweep around left end on his final rush of the game It came at 1:38 of the final period and gave the 5-foot-ll, 192-pound senior from .Aliquippa, Pa., a career total of 5,206. Dorsett needs only 92 yards to break the over-all NCAA rushing mark of 5,297 set by Howard Stevens in two years at little Randolph-Macon and two at the University of Louisville, It was a struggle for three periods as a fired-up Navy defense kept Dorsett from breaking any long gainers and limited him to 116 yards on 23 carries, including a six-yard touchdown late in the second period following a blocked punt to give Pitt a 14-0 halftime lead. But Dorsett turned on his after-burners w,th a 21-yard scoring burst up the middle on the first play of the final period. That left him 15 yards short of Griffin’s record and it was obvious what was coming when Pitt got the ball again at the Navy 43. The ensuing drive was all Dorsett. He ripped the middle for 10 yards and nicked right guard for just one. But the next play was the record- breaker and his 12th touchdown of the season, as well. The entire Pitt squad mobbed Dorsett in the end zone and even the partisan Navy cannon boomed out a salute. En route to the record. Dorsett became the first runner ever to produce four 1.000- yard seasons. He also wiped out the career mark of 918 rushing attempts by Cornell’s Ed Marinaro and boosted his total to 930, starting in 1973 when he' became the first freshman in 29 years to make The Associated Press’ All- America Team. This season, Dorsett has gained 1,072 yards on 195 carries. The AP's Top 20 and how they fared 1. Michigan (7-0-0) beat Indiana 35-0 2. Pittsburgh (7-0-0) beat Navy 45-0 3.
